We’re watching the Mariners lose to the brilliant pitching of Curt Schilling for the Boston Red Sox, and I was struck by this totally ridiculous statement during the normal verbiage about the telecast belonging to the network:
“Any accounts or descriptions of this game may not be disseminated without the express permission of the Seattle Mariners.”
I’d tell you about how the game would’ve been tied right now in the 8th inning if Juilo Mateo hadn’t made a bad wild pitch and then missed the toss from Dan Wilson while covering home plate in the 6th – but that would be a violation of the licesnsing… who allows them to write these kinds of statements?
As long as I’m not giving an account or description of the game, I won’t tell you about how the Mariners brought it to within one run in the eighth before Raul Ibanez scored a 3 run home run to put the M’s on top 7-5 at mid-inning – let’s hope the bullpen can hold the lead.
Well, the bullpen gave up two runs to tie the game at seven, and then the teams struggled for four more scoreless innings, until Boston finally won it with a two-run homer in the bottom of the twelfth.
But you didn’t hear that account or description of the game from me – uh-uh.
